Zelenovic Pleads Not Guilty

(TU No 461, 14-Jul-06)
Zelenovic was arrested in Russia last August but only arrived in The hague in June, having been sent on a roundabout route via Sarajevo. At the time, he declined to enter a plea on the charges against him and was given a further 30 days in which to do so.

Prosecutors allege that he was involved in a series of sexual assaults during the war, including the gang rape of a 15-year-old girl.

They have requested that his case be transferred to the Bosnian courts, as part of plans to wind down the Hague tribunal's work over the next few years.
